Stopped by the Hedley Club Lounge Saturday after the Sharks Game. What a fabulous surprise! a great combo playing old school smooth jazz. A relaxing venue by the fireplace with pleasant surroundings and comfortable accommodations. A real winner in downtown San Jose. Best cocktail lounge in the area. Beats the noise and crowds at the nearby venues.

The hotel is without question gorgeous, from the elevator doors to the bathroom wallpaper. It's also surface clean, with towels and linens in good shape. Where it falls down and falls down hard is with the service and amenities. Hubby and I booked a room for a romantic night away together just a few days ago and we had reasonably... More

This hotel would probably not be acceptable for business people but it worked out fine for me.The business center is nothing more than a shelf off the lobby and you pay for computer time except for boarding pass print-outs. I chose the hotel mainly for location, price and basic room amenities. Location was great. Walked to all areas and felt... More

Turned up after a canceled flight, and found that they had no wifi for a number of days or any services on their end so they could not confirm by booking; was made to wait for ages so they could confirm by booking and hotel made no apologies. Rude, bad service. Do not recommend.

Having to be in San Jose for a meeting at the last minute, the city was booked….this was the only "decent" hotel available (so options extremely limited). Nice looking building on the outside. Lobby, common areas decent. Convenient downtown location, but beware of the costs. Seriously, almost $300 for a king bed room, the only one available! It sort of... More

As soon as I checked in, I asked the front desk about their wifi, and whether there were problems. They assured me they have the best and that they have a technical team that can fix anything that comes up. I told them that it was very important to me that I had wifi because I had some serious work... More

The De Anza is a great historic hotel in a great spot in downtown San Jose. As a historic property, there is a great deal of character in the beautiful common areas and rooms. But because it is so old, don't expect huge rooms, and don't be surprised if the building is a bit 'quirky'! Water pressure can dip at... More

This hotel was a delight. Beautiful building, spacious rooms, natural light, clean, peaceful. But they don't stop there - there's filtered water available for free (along with ice), fruit sitting out, and a late night buffet of leftovers available for anyone whose evening gets away from them. They do make a point to remember your name and if you've been... More

The worst stay I can remember. The city was booked so I had to make a multiple booking for each night at this hotel. It was my first time here. The AC station is right nest to the head for the bed and it is LOUD. I mean LOUD. I complain the first night and they say they will fix... More

The De Anza is simply charming! The boutique style and luxurious, yet simple, rooms are a breath of fresh air when compared to "the normal elites" of today. The simple yet alluring room design and natural lighting (corner room) invites to to sit and relax. The beautiful and spacious bathrooms call you in to enjoy the tub and relaxing design.... More
